Could you update your graphics driver and try again?
Comment 2 User image laugeo 2012-06-11 07:19:03 PDT
Well, I use the graphic driver from Debian Squeeze  packages  which are updated to the most recent version available.  (chpiset  intel i915 )

Please note that Firefox 10.0 is not affected by this problem.

Is your graphics driver blocked in F10 in about:support too?
Comment 4 User image laugeo 2012-06-11 07:40:52 PDT
Yes it is blocked:
I have read somewhere that acceleration was desactived by default in Linux.

GPU Accelerated Windows0/1. Blocked for your graphics driver version.
